According to a Sam Mobile report, Samsung Pay has been launched in India and works on selected devices.
Samsung stepped into India’s payments markets last month, but now it is supporting banks such as Axis, HDFC, ICICI, SBI, and Standard Chartered, and credit and debit cards from MasterCard and Visa. Apart from these traditional banking tie-ups, Samsung also partnered with Paytm, India’s largest mobile wallet with over 200 million registered users.
Paytm really took off India after the Prime minister introduced Demonetization program, and everybody looked up to easy-to-use digital payment platform, Paytm.
Although Samsung is tied up with the banks, the device support remains to be its biggest issue. Sam Mobile reported that the Samsung Pay is only available on Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7.
With that Samsung Pay is live in 13 countries, including Korea, China and the United States.
